i dont understand.. for a little bit more, you could have just purchased one pair of Beckhams... which will last you a life time and will only look better with age...

edit: just read your update- hooray! haha. it's a blessing in disguise!

I've been told to get my boot oil from RedWing Shoes and to not use any of those BS sprays.

Edit:

Cancelled my order after all that...

Steve Madden website says items will be shipped to Canada with either USPS or Fedex. I called them to ensure the item gets shipped USPS so that I don't have to pay brokerage but they say they have no control over which shipping company they use. So after I factor in exchange rate, sales tax, brokerage and potentially duty I'm at like $175 per shoe... for Steve Maddens.... may as well just look for some Red Wings on sale online
Picked up my Beckmans for 260USD online last fall from shoebuy.com. I'm sure a site like that will have some sort of sale over the next few days. Shipping was no hassle either. No surprises on delivery.

Don't buy Steve madden shit, complete garbage. Both pairs I've had from them were some of the most uncomfortable shoes I've work and they both basically fell apart in under 8 months.

I think it's worth it to spend the extra 80-150 for get somthing that will last

Aldo shoes are better quality than Steve Maddens, worst quality shoes you can buy.

AAnthony: that quote from bonka. he has no clue what he's talking about.

here's a photo of my 1k's which i've owned for 2 yrs now. the right one was just cleaned up. i only wear them during the fall/winter. that means i'm walking in water and snow (random fact: i didnt have any waterproof boots for snow shoeing so i actually wore these. looked like a fool but my feet were dry and warm.. lol). they've since fallen out of rotation and now are used 90% of the time to walk my dog at mcdonald beach. that means i'm walking in wet sand, and water.



and what's replaced them are Alden Indys. Also with a leather sole. Which I've worn in the rain, and snow.

Oh and as another "you have no clue what you're talking about bonka": i was wearing my red wing 3141s and got stuck in a snow storm last yr in philly. i had to help push cars stuck in snow. wearing my red wings. sure it has a crepe sole, but rain/water/whatever does not ruin leather.

If you know how to take care of your shit, they'll last forever. save manufacturer defects. LOL.

I'll take a pic of my RW 877's when i get a chance, bought them two novembers ago now

since then i've probably oiled them 15 times? imo they look nicer now than they did when i purchased them, and they get relatively heavy wear during the winter months

1000 Mile is probably my favourite as of now

Edit: Brutal, just saw this now, guess that rules out 1000 Mile, and the Iron Rangers this is Raincouver after all
You can get them resoled as well if needed, I have the Beckmans and 1000 miles and prefer the 1000 miles a little more.

I just pulled the trigger on the Dayton Service Boots in charcoal nubuck as well. I loved the wings + horns and Dayton collab a few years ago but couldn't afford it back then. I hope the boots are as good as everyone says.

LOL it's a known fact wet (add salt for winter) will deteriorate leather soles quicker especially when most people don't know how or won't maintain them properly. You might maintain them but how many will use shoetrees or dry them completely on their sides?

I agree with you 100% that maintenance is key .. BUT.. just to clarify.. concerning the soles itself though, you dont have to worry about it from my experience.

i treated the 1k's soles ONCE with montana pitch blench when i was still trying to figure out a maintenance routine for them.. but the soles themselves dont need much in terms of care vs the uppers!

The best way to prevent your hipster boots from deteriorating is to not wear them. All you stupid hipsters think you know everything. The secret is to immortalize them by snapping Instagram pix duh
